Carrying consoles

carrying consoles for easy and efficient die change on the press bed

 

die changing consoles in hanging, supported, swivelling or driven design

minimisation of set-up times, thus more effective machine uptimes combined with high safety at work

load/pair : 5 .. 250 kN
length of support: 500 .. 2500 mm

Other loads and suitable length of support are available on request.

8.18350 Carrying console, hanging (figure 1)
The carrying consoles are hung in the hooks on the die changing side of the press. The hooks are supplied with the consoles. The consoles are used as a pair. Their size must be selected to suit the highest die weight.
The die is loaded onto the consoles using a crane or a forklift truck. The carrying rollers consist of high-strength hardened needle bearings. The end stop can be bypassed in one direction.
The surface is provided with a shock-resistant coating in RAL1004, golden yellow.
Hanging consoles may be used for several presses. In this case, an additional set of hooks is required.

8.18351 Carrying console, supported (figure 2)
In order to cope with heavy and large dies, the console is provided with an additional support. For compensating for unevenness on the floor, the supports are designed as adjustable supports with a ball-and-socket joint. The support height may be changed subsequently by ±60 mm.
The end stop can be bypassed in one direction.

 

 

8.18352 Carrying console, swivelling (figure 3)
This console is permanently fixed to the press bed and can be pivoted into the die changing position.
This type is particularly recommended when the available space in front of the press bed is limited, or if removal and intermediate storage of the console is not possible or wanted.
For carrying rollers, end stop and surface coating, see above.

Special customer-specific carrying consoles on request
as e.g. ”sliding carrying consoles” (figure 4)

 

 

8.18353 Die changing station with drive (figure 5-9)
dies up to a weight of 200 kN
The cost-effective drive system has been developed on the basis of standard die consoles and can be easily installed as it requires only little space. Thus, it is very suitable for both retrofitting and new constructions.
The drive unit and the carrying console are hung in hooks provided on the press for this purpose and then locked. The die is deposited on the consoles using a crane or a forklift truck. After the die has been deposited, it can be connected to the changing station by means of a push-and-pull system.
The integral chain drive system allows the user automatic die loading and positioning, just by depressing a push-button on a separate remote control pendant. During a die change, the press bed is free, i.e. the push- and-pull elements do not project over the press bed. Also the rear side of the press is completely free.
This changing station is suitable for almost any press, can be easily removed and is easy to handle.

 

 

 

Versions of the die changing station
figure 8:
Version with a driven central console and two standard-type carrying consoles on the right and left side. This cost-effective alternative is flexible and can be used on various presses.
figure 9: Version with two driven and synchronized consoles. This extremely sturdy and precise alternative is suitable for almost all die sizes and geometries.
